Learning for Yourself: Supported Study in Strathclyde Schools.
This report evaluates the Supported Study program, study centers designed to facilitate student achievement in elementary and secondary schools in the Strathclyde Region of Glasgow, Scotland. These centers are a place for students to work on their homework before or after school, with adult assistance available. The origins and purposes of supported study in the Strathclyde Region are discussed, and a detailed description of the study centers is presented, including various models of supported study. Several issues related to the implementation of a supported study center are examined, and profiles are given of students who attend, and students who do not attend, the centers. Students, parents, administrators, teachers, and supported study coordinators completed questionnaires about the project, and excerpts from those questionnaires are included in this report. Several indicators of the project's success are outlined, including a growth in student self esteem, more positive attitudes toward school, and improved teacher-student relationships. The report concludes that supported study has been a highly successful initiative. (MM)
